Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox are on the defensive after a paparazzo filed a lawsuit claiming that Green beat him for taking pictures of the couple on a Hawaiian beach.

Now Celebuzz can offer details of the suit -- and exclusively reveal the couple's first response to it.

In the suit, Delbert Shaw maintains that the couple hurled verbal threats as he photographed them in front of the Four Seasons Resort in Hualalai, Hawaii. The December 2010 confrontation quickly escalated, claims Shaw, with Fox yelling to her hubby, “Are you going to let him get away with that?”

That’s when Green knocked Shaw to the ground, hitting him and causing severe injures, the suit alleges. To add insult to injury, Shaw claims the former Beverly Hills, 90210 star snatched his iPhone and tossed it into the ocean.

In the couple’s court documents, Green and Fox “categorically deny” Shaw’s allegations and lay out their version of the December 18, 2010, incident. The actors insist that they “were forced to defend themselves from Plaintiff.” They also note that Show is "notoriously reputed" to be "a hyper aggressive and physically combative paparazzo” who “has a long history of altercations with his subjects and even his fellow paparazzi.”

As for Shaw’s allegations about his cell phone, the documents claim Fox did not conspire with Green to steal Shaw's iPhone.

All in all, the A-listers claim Shaw's allegations "are without merit and are premised on a tissue of misrepresentations and half-truths."

Who's to blame -- Shaw, or  Green and Fox? Weigh in below.

    The paparazzi are pains in the ass -- they know it and take pride in it. The celebs are human beings and if they let the paps shoot away, cool. If they ask the paps to go away, then they should be required to go away. And if they remain within reach of the celebs, they should take their beatings like good little soldiers.

    This couple does set up paparazzi shots (like LeAnn Rimes and Eddie Cibrian) with GSI agency and take 50% of the sales. They were mad that this guy was cutting into their pocket books...
